Index.
  • Excel templates. These templates are built into the text. The L&P difference is that the EXCEL templates are partially constructed so that the focus is on learning about management science and not about learning EXCEL
  • Streamlined coverage
  • Chapter 3 in full color to show power and flexibility of spreadsheet modeling and solutions.
  • Increased volume and variety of end of chapter problems
  • CD in text includes Crystal Ball, Tree Plan, and Extend
  • Simulation chapter expanded and improved
  • Strong emphasis on modeling and analysis instead of plug and chug solution of problems. For each concept, the authors build the model first, then solve with spreadsheets.
  • Unique emphasis on the interpretation, and communication of results to management. Teaches the relevance of management science for business decision making.
  • Superior end of chapter problems - challenging, relevant, varied. Non-trivial examples in the text reinforce chapter concepts.
  • Wider variety of topics, including quality management and Markov Processes as optional chapters on the accompanying CD.
